My reading this past week
The Shape of Things To Come by H.G. Wells This took me a lot longer then I'd expected, partly because it was such a large and thought provoking book, so I didn't finish anything else this week. Giveaway coming later today!
Allotted Time by Robin Shelton
Planned reading for this week coming:
Oriel's Diary by Robert Harrison (to help me celebrate Easter)
The personal diary of Archangel Oriel, colleague of Gabriel and Michael, records the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus ChristA Time of Gifts by Patrick Leigh Fermor (bookcrossing ray)
Like a tramp, a pilgrim, or a wandering scholar' an eighteen-year-old boy set out, one wet December day in 1933, to walk to Constantinople. This book covers his journey as far as Hungary.
The World is Not For Sale by Jose Bove and Francois Dufour (because I planned to read it for Earth Day)
The small town of Milau is south-west France was recently the scene of an extraordinary protest. Responding to America's hike of import duties on the locally produced Roquefort cheese, an angry group of local farmers marched to the site of a McDonald's fast food restaurant, then under construction, and dismantled it. They piled the building on the back of their tractors and drove it through the town in front of cheering supporters. The protest made front-page news around the world as the latest indication of burgeoning public concern about the growth of junk food and the agribusiness it depends on.
